What's a Fat Bomb??????
 
I have read several posts where people are eating them, just what exactly are they and what is the recipe?

My PERSONAL recipe is:

1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup CO.
1/2 cup freshly ground PB
1 tsp SEA SALT.
1 tsp-equivalent Stevia (though I leave it out, just as often)

Nuke until melted. Stir well. Pour (using my 1/8 cup spoon, which equals 2 TBS) into 12 silicone muffin-forms. Freeze. (Freezing takes about 10 minutes.)

I was finding that the part I liked best was the PB on the bottom... because it's SALTY. So I started salting them, and it made a huge difference. :)

A lot of folks make these sweet, and add chocolate, or some-such. For me, it's not a candy... it's a hunk of fuel.

They're INTENSELY satisfying.

1 stick unsalted butter
1 pkg cream cheese
splash vanilla
liquid splenda to taste (I use 20 drops)

Mix well, drop on silicone baking sheet, and freeze. I store them in the fridge though. Taste like little cheesecake bites to me.

Ooh that sounds good - I really don't care for CO (i know, i know) AND I have some SF Kahlua DaVinci's i could use.....:yummy:

Will try and report my success or failure!

Do people on here see success without using the coconut oil and replacing it with another "fat"? Not a huge fan of CO. Just wondering. Thank you!

I had the same question...

Try it with just the butter.

First time I did Atkins, back BC (Before Children), I'd never even bought CO. While we like CO for its special health-benefits, butter is a perfectly fine fat, capable of supplying energy just like CO is.

If it's the taste you don't like (I don't) get the refined CO. Not even a hint of coconut flavor. I even cook eggs in a combination of that and butter.

I gave my sister some of the recipes and she makes them to what she likes.

I think you can make a fat bomb to your liking. I might be wrong but isn't it to up your fat?

elainesmith 02-04-2013 01:09 PM

why do you want to up your fat? :dunno:

I know the coconut oil is good for you and some say causes weight loss to increase....but what else are the bombs good for?

  • Dietary fat signals satiation to your body -- it tells your body you've had enough to eat, and sends "Anti-hunger" signals.
  • Dietary fat increases your metabolism, and encourages ketosis.
  • Dietary fat improves your lipid-profile and reduces your chances of heart disease.
  • Dietary fat provides prolonged energy -- particularly useful before physical activity.

Generally, if you are on LC and you are hungry, you need more fat. This is a quick way to get that.
